Barclays employee flees with $400, 000 from vault

This is Pamela Gondwe, an employee of  Barclays Bank Longacres Branch. On Monday this week, disappeared with US400,000 Cash, the Watchdog has been briefed.

She recently  returned from a trip to Ghana with her West African boyfriend.Pamela was one of the people entrusted with the Vault (Dollar Safe box).

Two weeks ago she went to work carrying an empty bag . She claimed that she had just bought the bag. She left the bag in the vault room. On Monday , she told a workmate at the Vault section that she had received instructions from the Head Office to get the serial numbers for all the US Dollars in the vault. They entered the Vault and started recording serial numbers. She then offered her colleague some food. The workmate  went to the Staff Canteen to eat. Behind, Pamela loaded all the Dollars in the bag and hid the bag withing the banking premises.

When her colleague returned,  Pamela had already locked her part because two people have keys to the vault. She told her colleague  that she had locked her part and was on her way to the Saloon for a quick retouch to her hair.

She then used the back door out of the bank to the alley between Puma Filling Station and the Bank through to Longacres market and off she went.

When she did not return, they  started calling her, but realised that she had left the phone. Fearing for the worst, the branch manager got the master  keys and opened the vault only to find US$400, 000 has disappeared. Her phone was in the Vault. When the CCTV was reviewed, she was seen packing the money.

    The real reason she took the money is because you’re not paying your employees enough. K4000 is not ENOUGH!!! To look at cash that not yours all day and still be a stand up citizen

    Maybe she failed even to access a loan due to lower KPI which makes you not entitled event a bonus, increment and above a loan so what do you resort to stealing. These days there is no wisdom and understanding from management. i cannot blame her find out why she did that, don’t just condemn

    Zambians are slowly becoming clever. The bank will get the money from insurance as vaults are insured up to the maximum the can store. Bring more west africans to teach them lessons on how to share wealth among whites, insurance and the poor

    I don’t support what my niece from eastern province has done, it could be that her association with work mates from this primitive tribe to the north of this country has transformed her into a hardcore kawalala.

    If leaders can steal why can’t she? She is on her way to SA then Ghana right now with a different passport.

    She will how ever only talk after being dumped by the boyfriend because the man is just interested in the money. He will again steal the money from her and leave her to suffer or ever traffic her into prostitution in Europe.

    Women please falling for such life threatening scums.

    THE INSURANCE WILL PAY. AND PROBABLY THAT IS JUST A DROP IN THE OCEAN. THESE INERNATIONAL COMPANIES ARE BIG ENSLAVER OF PEOPLE.SALARIES ARE PATHETIC.EG G4S A CASHIER GETS A K2,500 SECURITY GUARD K1100.DOES IT MAKE SENSE WHEN THE BIGGEST CHANKY OF CASH THE BOSSES GET AND THEY ARE FAILERS .THEY CANNOT DELIVER.LET THE DOCILE MINISTER OF LABOUR INVESTIGATE
